Family Portrait NJ Traditional Style
How did we fill the request for a “unique space without a cookie cutter style” that would collectively reflect this family of five’s personality, taste and interest?
Here’s what we did: Away went the gold-colored walls and were replaced with a creamy white hue that would brighten the space and create a backdrop to our soft color scheme. Measuring thirty feet long, the room was divided in two areas so it would either function for a crowd or a cozy alcove for two. A chandelier was added as another layer to bring down the ceilings. An antique rug was professionally sized to define the TV area. Within this space we were able to create another comfortable nook by complementing the sectional with a sconce for ambiance and reading. The triptych above the sectional is a one of kind textile print that adds warmth and texture, completing, but not enveloping the wall space.
A set of plaid wool chairs were positioned near the floor to ceiling window, providing beautiful natural light, while a handcrafted brass star pattern table draws interest.
Anchoring a gray/silver cowhide rug it stands upon is a show stopping bentwood and glass coffee table.
A long custom bench creates a vignette on one wall beneath a collection of custom artwork that further personalizes the room. The family’s thumbprints were collected, enlarged, gilded, and framed to create a one-of-a-kind grouping.
Our last task was to tastefully add artwork to a family room to illustrate a family’s love of sports. (we gently advised against the client’s urge to frame the professional hockey jerseys) We checked this box (pun intended) by further customizing this room with abstract pen and ink drawings that illustrate the owners’ love of both hockey and golf.
